About the Department

The department was established in 1965 as Department of Applied Mechanics, Hydraulics and Hydraulic Machines for imparting Post Graduate education in the interdisciplinary areas of Mechanics. The first PG programme of the department on Analysis and Design of Process Equipments was started in 1967. The Department was later renamed as the Department of Applied Mechanics in 2002.

The department offers various courses in the broad area of Mechanics for Undergraduate Programmes of different engineering branches, including Civil, Mechanical, Production, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Biotechnology etc.

The department presently offers four Postgraduate (M.Tech.) programmes:

  1. Engineering Mechanics & Design
  2. Materials Science and Engineering
  3. Fluids Engineering and
  4. Biomedical Engineering

As part of its continuous effort to impart latest knowledge to its students, the department has revised and upgraded the curriculum of all the four post graduate programmes and implemented the same from session 2021-22. All the programmes are added with strong laboratory components.

Commensurate to its thrust for higher learning, the department offers Ph.D. programmes in wide areas of Applied Mechanics and Materials Engineering.

The department has qualified and committed faculty members, pursuing the academic and research activities comparable to international standards. The department inherits a strong pool of renowned alumni members, well established across the globe.

To impart global dimension and industrial relevance to its research, the department signed many Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) from time to time with different organization such as University of Missouri (USA), Feng Chia University (Taiwan) and Bharat Pump and Compressors Limited, Naini, Allahabad (India) etc. A number of Research Projects, Industry Sponsored testing/consultancy projects are regularly taken up and executed.

There are excellent facilities for research and learning with a very renowned, experienced and dedicated faculty members. The all faculty members possess Ph.D. degree. The department will experience it Diamond Jubilee in the year 2024.

Vision of the Department

To establish itself as a department recognised for its quality post graduate education and research in the broad field of Applied Mechanics and Materials.
